i have used this motor on a bobcat (small size)....with big 7x5 prop....it has been fryed after 2 min .......the 2826 turnigy 2200kv (orange) work perfect with this plane and prop........both use 3s 2200.....any ideas why?????
You can use a 5X5, a 6X4, a 4.5X5.5. The trick is keeping the amperage down. 4.75X4.75 is fairly uncommon, but should keep you around 20A. If you go with my suggestions, you will be able to go for a 30A ESC, and have a decent amount of thrust.
It says in the specs it will run 4s, Probably have to drop the pitch, but you need to check current draw to know. It will be close to 45A, a little bit much, but check the other posts before to see. I am using 6X4 on 3s, and current is good.
Hy Effina. For example I'm using an APC 5.25 X 6.125 prop for 40 Amps with 3s 1600 nanotech, motor is outside the model so it cools perfectly. So no problem on my radjet800. With a 4.75 X 4.75 or a 5X5 it eats around 30/35 amps but model's speed too slow to me (under 180 kph)
Please can anyone tell me where can I get the prop adapter separately. The problem is, that other 4mm shaft prop adapters come with wery wide spacers for big proppelers and it doesnt sit directly on the prop center (APC 6x4). I lost the prop adapter in a funjet crash.
I am interested in reversing the prop shaft. one comment to loosen the grub screws and push the shaft through. My motor only has one grub screw and the other end is held by a circlip so how do I go about this?
I've got it. After looking at the circlip, the only way to move the shaft is to remove the clip, but that is a problem, because it holds a bearing. This is how to do it: Put the motor on a lathe, cut a small groove into the motor shaft 1/16" from the end, and transfer the clip to the new groove. You could possibly do this by hooking up the motor, mounting it, then spinning the motor, cutting a groove with a file (very small).
Well, my measurements were right, and this motor JUST FITS in the high performance mount for the F27c Stryker! That saved me a headache! Now, I don't have to make a custom mount. With this motor, she should be about 10% more powerful, making it possible to tickle 100MPH. I did a hydrographic dip on this plane (first in the world), and it is downright striking, and looks better than anything the P-Zone boys have come up with.
Could you use a Turnigy 2836 brushless motor on a Bixler v1.1 and what speed control and battery and prop would be best.I've heard that the 2826-6 is fast but I want smoking fast.Also has anyone used a Inrunner motor for a Bixler.Details would be great.Thanks.
I set up a BIXLER v2 with 2200mah 3 s nano tech bat with 45amp esc and 2826-6 motor.prop was original one sent with model.7x5. Result great performance but wings needed lots of carbon fibre rod for support.i have ordered order a floater jet and will carry out the same mods but with smaller prop.
This model should be quicker and more manoeruverable.
Hope this helped you.
The way it comes from the factory, the shaft sticks out the same side the X-mount is mounted at. Lots of folks (like myself) simply undo the hex screws and push the shaft out the other end leaving enough room to put a 4mm landing gear wheel stop on it. This way, the propeller mounts opposite the side of the X-mount.
No, this motor is too big. And this motor is not meant for Helis. Look for heli motors that are 200 size. This one is more like 450, although it really shouldn't be used in Helis. Mostly used in Funjet.
Running with a 6x5 prop 4cell 100 amp ok.Motor runs a little hot but it goes well.The esc could not handle the 6x6.The 6X5 prop is a has a bit of flex and probabley straightens a bit at wot.The fun jet goes well with this setup,will let you know if the motor keeps handling it.
Try this thread on RCG for info on the motor, and maybe the motor rewind threads for general info. Have you rewound a motor before. If not read up and go for it. I have had great success with rewind, but you have to practice and learn the hard way. Good www.link 2836

And a rewind of a similar motor. Enjoy.

Obv' depending on how you fly :)... ...But as a rough guess I'd say 8 mins average flying and maybe half that going for it. Why the 4.7 prop though? ... might be flightly nicer to play with swinging something a bit larger. I tend to use 6x4 or 6x5 for around the same Auw.... personal taste maybe.. both will be rapid.
Hey guys. This motor is the first motor I have bought that hasn't been in a kit. I want to put this on a Radjet and I know I have to change the shafting for a pusher mount. Are there any good tutorials on how to do this? I really don't want to botch up my perfectly new motor.
This motor is very good for High speed plane. I bought for 'K & S Silkywind Racing'. Measurement data, I use Eagle Tree data logger, Hyperion Emeter & Tahmazo thrustmeter on my Test Bench. Please check my web site www.link data is actual measurement.

i have now 4 off those, they are running on 4 lipo's 2500 30C zippy's ,i run it with a apc 4.5 x 4.1 in a funjet 6 a 8 min of running, it's pull out 550 WATT , with the apc 4.7 x 4.25 it's running at 600 WATT . all on the ground .TURNIGY Sentry 40amp Speed Controller run's ok with it . gr jolanda The nederlands

Here is the setup to get you to 110mph in a Funjet. 2836 2350, APC 5.5x4.5, 60A SS, At least a 2650mAh 4S 20C Turnigy (need to sustain 60A). I used a Wattsup meter to read 58A at 14.7V for 875W. Doppler at 110mph consistently and use WOT for 30-60 sec at a time.

I use this motor combined with a 4:1 planetary gearbox in a glider. With 4S lipo and aeronaut folding-prop I got awesome climbing-rates at 36A.

The motor seems ok and run wery well. But the wires are wery poor. I soldered bannana plugs on wires and after one test run, two of three broke of... Other turnigy motors have way better wires than this motor. I am wery dissapinted that for 17$ i got 5$ worth motor wires.... I would rewind with my good quality wire...
